Basic health and safety requirements
For a list of current COVID-19 protocols for campus and workspaces, please see the UCLA protocols at a glance chart.
Regular cleanings: UCLA Facilities Management performs cleanings and disinfection of all high-use common areas, restrooms and public spaces throughout campus — including office common areas and restrooms. Details on these cleanings is available here (PDF). For the cleaning of individual offices, units and departments can purchase cleaning packages through Facilities Management by submitting a facilities service request (please include “COVID” in the FAU project description).
Workplace meetings and remote technology
Because a significant number of employees are likely to be on a hybrid work schedule or completely remote, some offices in which employees are working in person may want to update their conference room audio-visual systems to accommodate those who are off site. UCLA’s IT Services has put together a set of technology recommendations based on room types, sizes and purposes to ease the burden of research and product selection. For more information, please contact IT services at firstname.lastname@example.org or 310-267-4357.
Dealing with violations of COVID protocols
UCLA is focused on developing of a collaborative community of compliance to help reduce the spread of COVID-19. Supervisors and department heads should remember to remind employees to complete the daily Symptom Monitoring Survey, to wear masks at all times in the office and to follow other campus protocols.
There may be times when employees, after being reminded, continue to ignore campus health and safety protocols. If employees demonstrate repeated noncompliance with protocols, a complaint can be made to an employee’s supervisor or unit head. In addition, reports of violations may be made anonymously through UCLA’s whistleblower hotline at 800-403-4744.
A determination will be made whether an employee’s violation was willful or not. Employees with willful violations, repeated violations or violations believed to have resulted in COVID-19 infections will face disciplinary measures up to and including exclusion from campus.
For full details of UCLA’s protocol on compliance and violations, see Compliance With Safety Measures (PDF).
Pivoting to hybrid or remote work
Significant changes in the public health landscape could require UCLA to make changes to work arrangements — including adjusting workplace density or shifting some offices to completely remote work. Our COVID-19 Pivot Plan (PDF) describes the criteria that will inform possible changes in our operations.
